The performers were West Germans and the audience were East Germans.

Regardless, this is the video (no, I didn't uploaded it nor do I have a copy, though I do have a couple of their LP-albums):

With such deep, intelligent lyrics like this, it is a shocker that the audience is so bored and unhappy. The lyrics are better than anything on MTV lately! (oh wait, I forget, MTV doesn't play any music these days).

On a serious note, I heard the reason the lyrics are one-line-long is because one or two of the vocalists couldn't speak english so the producer-songwriters used very simple lyrics she/they could remember.

Maybe the audience looked bored becouse they didn't speak English either. Used to have this song on a K-TEL record. Simpler times then.
